Remains From at Least 2 People Found in Brockton Woods

Remains from at least two people were found in the woods on Monday in Brockton, according to Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz.

An investigation began a little after noon on Sunday, when Brockton police received a call reporting “apparent human remains,’’ Assistant District attorney Bridget Norton Middleton said, Maria Papadopoulos reports for The Enterprise. According to officials, the remains were found in the woods about a quarter-mile from the parking lot of the Brockton VFW Post 1046, off of North Quincy Street. One dismembered set of remains appeared to be from a woman in her 20s with brown hair. That set was found on a second set of remains that has yet to be identified.


Middleton wouldn’t release more information about the remains, nor did she say whether foul play is being considered. According to another official, the bodies were in the woods for at least two weeks, but Middleton said, “It’s too early to make any determination if (the remains are) human, or how long they’ve been there. That’s all part of the investigation.’’
